• Chief Scout departing Palace for Albion

    Crystal Palace chief scout Tim Coe looks set to arrive at the Albion, departing from Crystal Palace as part of the upheaval that saw Tony Pulis leave the club hours before the start of the Premier League season.

    The fresh-faced 28-year old was the youngest chief scout in the Premier League, joining the Eagles from a position at Reading. Coe was a youth player at The Royals, playing under Brendan Rodgers, now manager of Liverpool, before serious injury curtailed his footballing career at the age of 20.

    Seeking another path in life, Coe settled on law but, unusually, supported his studies with a role assisting Reading chief-scout Brian McDermott and manager Steve Coppell.

    After graduating, Coe became head of youth development at Aldershot before taking roles with Huddersfield and Millwall as he continued his legal studies. Steve Parish recruited Coe when Palace's previous chief scout departed for Bolton with Dougie Freedman.

    He was instrumental in signings such as Dwight Gayle and Jose Campana as Palace built a team that kept them in the Premier League to the surprise of many and the utter disgust of Albion fans.
